Group and Monthly Meetings
Contact Sue or Peter if you need any help and we’ll do our best to assist.
The Zoom link will be sent out shortly before the meeting to everyone who has given us an email address, so if you receive the newsletter on email you will be included. No need to register but do put the date in your diary now.
Singing together is a great morale booster, so do come and join us.
See you there.
BEWARE OF SCAMS
Sad to say that scammers are trying all sorts of tricks at the moment.
In particular, anyone asking for payment for COVID test kits or TV Licences is not genuine and HMRC are not trying to send you refund.
Please be especially careful with unsolicited emails and phone calls. Do not give out any personal information, no matter how convincing the caller seems. If in doubt, get advice before doing anything.

We had a great afternoon sharing the various projects we had completed (or at least started) during 2020 including crafting of various sorts, knitting, quilting, colouring pictures, making models, books and films. It was so much fun that we would like to do it again – and since we are still locked down, we can!
If you are currently working on something creative (of any type) perhaps you would like to share it with us. As we don’t know when lockdown will end, I’m not setting a date yet, but it will probably be around Easter.
Plenty of time for you to make some progress and then share what you have achieved.
Do let me know if you would like to take part.
